The RAMa-lama-ding-dong 4000 from G.SKILL

The timings on G.SKILL's 4GHz DDR4 is 19-21-21-41, assuming you can find a chip and chipset which supports it.  For TechPowerUp that is an ASUS TUF Z370 PLUS GAMING and a Core i5-8400 @ 4.0 GHz.  The tight timings on the kit help it during benchmarking, and at roughly $245 for 16GB it is not the worst deal out there.  As an added benefit for some, the kit lacks any RGBs whatsoever!

"The G.SKILL Trident Z sticks have been around for a while now, available in a multitude of colors and speeds, as well as with RGB. These 4000 MHz sticks are for all you non-RGB lovers out there, but with such a high speed, you best make sure your motherboard and CPU are capable."

G.SKILL Announces a DDR4-4266 64GB kit as well as a DDR4-4000 128GB kit

If you like large pools of impressively fast DDR4 then check out these two new kits from G.SKILL.  The smaller of the two new kits has eight 8GB DIMMs clocked at DDR4-4266 CL19-19-19-39 @1.45V while the larger has eight 16GB DIMMs running DDR4-4000 CL19-19-19-39 @ 1.35V.

The DIMMs have been validated on the ASUS PRIME X299-DELUXE II motherboard with the Intel Core i9-9920X and i7-9800X, and it is quite possible you will have some success getting them to work on Threadripper.  That chip won't support the top frequencies of these DIMMs but it tends to like Samsung B-Die memory so you can have fun tightening the timings or dropping the voltage.

They will support XMP 2.0 profiles if you just want to get up and running immediately, without manually tweaking your settings in the UEFI.  They will be available in the new year and while we don't have pricing information yet, you can expect a wee bit of sticker shock when they are released.

If you thought the DDR4-3000 kit was excessive, meet Corsair's Vengeance LPX DDR4-4000

That is no typo, the 8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX kit which Hardware Canucks just reviewed is indeed 4000MHz effective at timings of 19-23-23-45.  The small size of the dual channel kit helps keep the MSRP to $225, affordable for what it is and not removing the purchase of a second kit from the realms of possibility.  However the question of performance remains, does a DDR4-4000 kit provide noticeable performance improvements or is it simply good for bragging rights for those few with a motherboard that can support it?  The results vary, especially when looking at memory timings and CPU overclocks compatible with the memory frequency however it was also clear that this memory could probably go faster ... if you had components that were capable of reaching those frequencies.

"The Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-4000 is one of the fastest, highest performance memory kits around but with a capacity of just 8GB, will it be enough for today's applications? "
